Phillips Connect Technologies (PCT), a strategic business unit of Phillips Industries, has partnered with Nussbaum Transportation, (headquartered in Hudson, Illinois), to supply a revolutionary “smart trailer” system that delivers GPS tracking, cargo detection, Automatic Tire Inflation System alerts, tire pressure and temperature monitoring, and an Anti-lock Braking System Decoder that provides detailed fault codes, trailer VIN information, and mileage reporting. PCT will also deliver on tractor-trailer pairing, ensuring the right tractors connect to the correct trailers before hauling a load. In combination, this smart trailer system will provide Nussbaum with detailed information to drive critical operational KPI reporting metrics. Additional sensor features under consideration by Nussbaum Transportation are the Phillips Connect LITE-SENTRY® (light out detection system), and the first-of-its-kind Phillips Connect Remote PreCheck system. This system will provide the ability to remotely pre-check lights and tires on a parked trailer from any device connected to the internet.
